Repair & Restoration
Our restoration practices are of the highest quality, precision and craftsmanship. We are able to restore instruments down to the smallest detail in the precise style of every violin maker.
The foundation of our work is a well-balanced combination of proven restoration methods and innovative techniques.
Our instruments are carefully crafted from the best materials. We only use long dried and stored wood for our instruments.
We offer a rehair service for bows using the best available horse hair and materials.
